White Sponges, purple Lace Coral, and Ascidians at Eden Caves,
Grand Cayman Island - Depth 45 feet or 14 meters
* This small cave habitat was found 15 feet or 5 meters
inside the cave mouth, Our attention was immediately drawn to the grouping of white Demosponges and purple Lace Coral (Stylaster roseus).
In the upper left was an orange Demosponge , a pale yellow Demosponge (both
unidentified), and red organisms, possibly Ascidians. It has been
suggested that the bright red-orange nodular forms may be Foraminifera.
